From my understanding, and research. The Mayan's did not say the world was going to end. Its people who are making that BIG leap. Mayan 2012 is
as simple as this.. An end of an Age. We will be moving into a new age.
The water bearer. Hence is why you see the dragon on the codex spewing water from its mouth..
It is ushering in the age of Aquarius. Its scholars and other folks who make that BIG leap that the Mayans are predicting a huge flood or what not.
So many times, things are taken out of context, and leaps are made by those looking to make some personal advances in their lives, or seem important
that they could figure out something as epic as the end of the world!
Mayan's only predicted the end of PIECES, and the start of Aquarius. In an astronomical sense.
---Off topic--- As these people did not have our modern curse. They had real skills, and true crafting skills, and had nothing better to do than
master such skills.. Skills we have totally lost touch with in many aspects.
While we may be "modern". Our society has lost so much knowledge, and so many skill sets that it makes me wonder.. Just how advanced are we really?
We have the internet, and other such things.. But in truth, I would take being a true craftsman over being a modern man, any day of the week.
As being "modern" has taken its toll on our skill sets.. And we look back at these people and wonder, how did they do that? We as modern folks
do not seem to realize, these people had nothing but time on their hands to perfect anything they did with great skill! Skill that is rarely seen in
this day and age, and I do mean RARE!
